I think Mylene should have declined and said no more

LESLEY KEATING: Sugar-free for a year and I’m glowing

Have your say

So Myleene Klass has got into trouble with parents at her child’s private school.

Seems she reportedly took exception to an e-mail she received suggesting all the parents club together to buy a class present for the birthday of one of the kids.

I suppose that I see her point.

If she were to stump up a tenner for each child in the class of, say, 30, that’s £300 a year just on gifts.

I don’t really know how the politics of children’s birthday parties work, let alone in a £5,000-a-term school, but I think that’s a bit much.

I reckon Myleene probably should have just declined this ‘optional’ donation and said no more about it, rather than get herself in the papers (again) because of her reaction.
